    The Lang-ay Festival celebrated in Bontoc, Mountain Province is sponsored by the local government. As one of the residents explained, the festival is a living tradition to celebrate, share happiness, foster friendship, family ties and brotherhood among the people of the province.

    All ten municipalities participate in this festival which is usually celebrated on April 7 of each year. The climax of this almost week-long celebration is the Lang-Ay Street Dancing where all the municipalities send their best residents to present the respective town's traditional dance and showcase their unique characteristic. A lot of colorful costumes, floats and traditional skills are displayed and the province's beauty queens walk down Bontoc main street to the delight of thousands of parade watchers. :)

    After the service at All Saints' Cathedral, the Episcopalian Church of Bontoc, the parishioners gather at the covered court located at the back of the church to partake of the sandwiches and boiled eggs and drinks laid out by the church. Visitors are welcome to join in this activity.

    It is a good way to see the locals in their sunday bests, a mixture of modern and traditional wear! :) Very colorful!

    The Bontoc Market is a good place to pick up some fresh fruits!! The blue tarps are used for protection from the sun and rain! Which we had later that afternoon in Sagada!! (Rain)

    Bontoc Museum

    We didn't visit the museum but it sounds like they have a nice collection of Artifacts from the area! I have seen mummys in another museum outside of Bagiuo.
